Mastering happiness

The Only Way to Become Amazingly Great at Something (including happiness)? Practice, practice and more practice…

I just read this article about mastery and greatness; and there’s no doubt in my mind that this applies just as much to happiness! Read some…

Very often you_ã_ll see blog posts or books teaching you to _ã–master_㝠a skill in only 10 days, or 3 days _ã_ in fact, it used to be 30 days but the time frame to master something seems to be shrinking rapidly.

I_ã_ve even seen tutorials claiming to teach a skill in just a few hours. Pretty soon we_ã_ll be demanding to know how to do something in seconds.

Instant mastery of skills and knowledge! Hey presto!

Unfortunately, the reality is something a little less magical. Or maybe that_ã_s a fortunate thing.

There_ã_s only one way to become good at something (including happiness)…and that’s to practice, practice some more and then keep practising!
